Safe drinking water for 1,200 children and staff at St Martin Mulago Primary School

SolarWave’s products change the lives of people. We use solar power and chemical-free water purification technologies to improve access to safe drinking water in developing countries. Hundreds of thousands of children in sub-Saharan Africa already benefit from safe drinking water from SolarWave systems, and we are very happy to welcome the 1,200 students and staff at St Martin Mulago Primary School in Kampala, Uganda into the SolarWave family!

The amazing project at St Martin was accomplished through the generous support of the German sponsors Grace Impact gGmbH and Munich RE. The project was implemented by SolarWave Uganda Limited in January 2018 in collaboration with Amref Health Africa and Kampala Capital City Authority.
